    This series works as the most cerebral and subdued member of the Batman family. David Messina's art helps offset that subdued quality with dynamic fight scenes and an overall high sense of energy. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies Jul 14, 2015

    This book continues to combine the street fighting that Catwoman readers will be familiar with and the mob politics that has played a major part in the previous arc, making it the perfect blend for readers who want a bit of both, and thanks to the strong writing provided by Valentine, as well as the good artwork from Messina and Loughridge, Catwoman,with the current creative team,continues to be a smart, welcome addition to DCs stable of quality bat-books. And one of the best, too. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jul 9, 2015

    Genevieve Valentine continues giving readers one of the smartest books in the DC You.  Mix in some costume fun with the crime noir and this might be the start of a very beautiful relationship.  While I question why an already crowded book needs another major character, I loved what Valentine did to make it more exciting.  While this was a setup heavy issue, the great art and twisting and turning story make it well worth a read.

    Batman-News - Joshua McDonald Jul 10, 2015

    Catwoman is still the strongest it's been since the book relaunched, but the team stumbles a little in this issue. That hardly means this issue is bad though, and if this is the weak spot in their run, then I don't think we have much to worry about as we move forward. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Gerry Green Jul 9, 2015

    I want to like this series since it is more complex than most books. However, the story needs to be told with a little more clarity to better bring out the characters and conflicts. Read Full Review
